Verdict

This shouldn't take much winning and AVENIR D'UNE VIE looks to have been found a good opportunity to make a successful debut as his dam won a similar race in France. De Plotting Shed was well supported on his debut between the flags at Oldcastle in April and probably would have won but for falling so he could be anything. This pair look better than the remainder with experience so Jessica Harrington's Our Duke and Sandra Hughes' Pauplewel, both bred to be useful jumpers, may prove more of a threat.
